Akosée brings Shakespeare’s dream of a mid-summer’s night to the middle of the jungle. We’re absolutely digging the prints: vibrant, warm tones that mimic the sunset view of tropical foliage, as well as unbridled florals in magenta and baby pink watercolour. These handcrafted patterns are made by the label’s in-house team in the Singapore studio, and they personally visit the manufacturers’ factories to ensure quality working conditions and clothing.
Serving up our dream vacay looks, the label has also expanded into the international market, bringing luxury resortwear to the US, New Zealand, Bali and more. For local customers, the brand offers to deliver items of your choice for you to try on before making a purchase decision – say goodbye to making returns for impulse online buys!
Akosée, available in multiple stockists including Design Orchard and Therapy Market
3. The Wit and the Will
Inspired by fabulous holidays in far-flung destinations, The Wit and the Will was created when founder (and Londoner) Zoe was forced to do a wardrobe overhaul upon her move to Singapore. Colours and prints take centre stage with her collections – pieces are made only from luxurious fabrics. You’ll find everything you need here for your beach vacay, from floor-grazing satin kaftans to tasselled kimonos.

Yes, strutting in stylish resortwear is good for that Instagram shot but you can’t enjoy your beach getaway or globetrotting with an itchy or stick-on-your-body top.

We’ve got a soft spot for Bella Kini – back in the day, it was a hole-in-the-wall store on the second floor of Bugis Street and the locale for our “starter” bikinis.
